Sculpting your back and arm muscles is a must if you want to ward off injuries and develop a well-defined upper body. Using tubing for resistance is a convenient and portable way to stay consistent with your workouts even if you're traveling. Try this simple move to tone and strengthen your back, shoulders and arms. Remember, you can always substitute a pair of dumbbells for variety.
1 Sit on a sturdy stool, bench or chair. Holding the ends of exercise tubing or a latex band in each hand, place your feet together in the center of the tubing. Make sure your heels are slightly forward of your knees. Lean forward with a straight back, pulling your abdominals in toward your spine.
